In this project funded by the German environmental protection agency GEN-Europe and the European Business Council for Sustainable Energy (e5) will be working together on two thematic strands cooperatively which aim at mainstreaming the ecovillage approach and connecting actors in the field across existing institutions and society groups.

The first thematic strand, held by GEN-Europe, will present ecovillage solutions and the ecovillage approach to sustainability to an urban audience and facilitate further connection between ecovillages in Germany.

The second thematic strand, held by e5, will focus on the field of the commons economy and bring together actors from ecovillages, the commons movement and business in German to look for potential technological, social or economic innovations. German project website
